4 reasons why Benedict Cumberbatch is a perfect Doctor Strange

Casting Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange seemed like a foregone conclusion—once he was rumored to be up for the role, the Internet sort of collectively decided that it belonged to him (although for one shining moment, it seemed as if Joaquín Phoenix might win the role).

Doing the math, he’s definitely one of the smartest choices Marvel could have made: Given that the subject matter for a Doctor Strange film is likely to be a psychedelic occult romp with trippy visuals and lots of chanting, any sort of profile boost the movie can get in the casting department is probably welcomed. In other words, Doctor Strange is not a known quantity, while Benedict Cumberbatch is.

But he might also prove to be a perfect fit for the character, too. Here’s why.
